Description

  • The The present invention relates to a system for acquisition, management and / or controlling access to compartments of a warehouse, comprising a variety of RFID transponders and a portable electronic device that identifies an RFID reader the RFID transponder having.
  • The Control and / or control of the removal of parts from a warehouse as well as the placement of warehouse with goods is frequent for the Warehouse management of a company of great importance. Especially In the manufacturing industry, it is often desirable by appropriate technical Means access to subjects to capture, manage and / or control a warehouse. this applies e.g. For the control of the removal of components from the subjects of a Warehouse, for example, to deliver this exact clock to a later production process, such as also e.g. For the management of the stock of components, in particular for such Warehouse with a variety of compartments, which are manually (i.e., not automatically) populated with components respectively, from which the needed Components are removed manually.
  • First, be however noted that in following without limitation the universality in the subjects of a storage or stored items always is spoken by "components".
  • at a system of the type described above is in addition to the so connected possibility to provide a system for ongoing control or updating the stock of components in each compartment of a warehouse in particular also the need to ensure, by appropriate technical means, that in the case of Do not accidentally remove the components from the compartment of a warehouse incorrect components or components of a wrong compartment are removed. Furthermore should if possible be sure that at a component of the bearing with components this also in the right, for the respective Component provided subjects be leveled.
  • A wrong assembly the bearing or the removal of incorrect components from the camp generally leads to unnecessary Losses of time or can occur in the manufacturing sector due to the unavailability of correct components quickly a production delay or even a short-term Stop a production process. In addition, a leads wrong removal or assembly of the camp often also to incorrect stock or inventory numbers. Associated production losses or delivery problems are often at considerable cost connected because the missed Production or delivery frequently either no longer or only with disproportionately high costs made up can be. Also the later exchange a wrongly installed component against a real component is often associated with enormous costs.
  • One Need for a generic system exists however, in any other warehousing operation, such as. by mail order or another, a spare parts warehouse entertaining operation.
  • For example, a system for monitoring and controlling access to compartments of a warehouse is already known from the European patent specification EP 0994761 known.
  • In this becomes a shelf with a signaling device with optical sensors for monitoring access to partitions of a warehouse with which a faulty or unscheduled access on the shelf or the removal of a component from a wrong one Tray be displayed by a visual and / or acoustic signal can.
  • outgoing From the prior art, it is the object of the present Invention, a possible to provide a user-friendly system that provides a reliable and efficient capture, management and / or control of access on subjects of a warehouse, which is characterized by a low installation effort and the greatest possible flexibility in terms of on the equipable with it or retrofittable Warehouse and offers an extended functionality.
  • These Task is through a system for collection, management and / or Control access to compartments a warehouse solved, that is a plurality of each associated with a compartment of the warehouse Has RFID transponders and a portable electronic Device includes, which with an RFID reader for automatically identifying a subject associated with a subject RFID transponders equipped when accessing the corresponding compartment is, wherein the portable electronic device additionally a transmitting and / or Receiving unit for wireless communication with a base station by means of a second, different from RFID transmission standard.
  • As a central component of the system according to the invention, the portable electronic device provided according to the invention can be considered. This has according to the invention RFID reader, which is suitable for (automatic) readout of the RFID transponder used (often also called RFID tags). In this case, the RFID reader communicates in a known manner with an RFID transponder in that it emits a signal, which is then to a certain extent reflected or returned by an RFID transponder and is received again by the reader. When the signal is reflected or returned by the RFID transponder, the signal is modulated onto a signal that is characteristic of the particular RFID transponder and with which the corresponding transponder can be identified. Reading out an RFID tag only works if the distance between RFID transponder and RFID reader does not exceed the typical reading range for the system.
  • With This portable electronic device is in a system according to the invention, where the individual subjects the warehouse are equipped with RFID transponders, thus possible, a RFID transponders assigned to a particular compartment during access to automatically read out on this tray.
  • there is first to note that the in the system according to the invention provided RFID transponder here in contrast to many others Applications of the RFID standard not to identify individual components or a person, but to identify the subjects of a camp in which each certain components are stored or should be stored. The logical association between the subjects of the camp and those in it stored or to be stored components can either by means of a separate warehouse management program, if necessary. On one via the base station wirelessly communicating with the portable electronic device computer system is present, carried out or in the case of RFID transponders with own memory unit (see below) also directly in the memory unit of the RFID transponder.
  • The Removal or retrofitting a warehouse with the RFID transponders of the system according to the invention done by attaching the respective RFID transponder to suitable Positions in or at the compartments of the camp. The exact location for the RFID transponder is dependent on of arrangement and transmission / reception range of the RFID reader (see below) to ensure that the RFID transponder only automatically be read when accessing the corresponding tray should; an unintended reading of a not this subject assigned RFID transponder should be avoided if possible. The order The RFID transponder is therefore advantageously within the subjects and particularly advantageous in the depth of the respective compartment, i. Not directly in the area of the access opening the subjects. This proves to avoid unintended reading out a false RFID transponder as particularly favorable, in addition also an embodiment of the partitions of the warehouse (or if necessary a retrofit the subjects with correspondingly shielding mats or similar) made of shielding material advantageous can be provided. Depending on local conditions, Reading range of the RFID reader and size of each subjects However, an arrangement of the RFID transponder in the area can also the access openings the subjects make sense. The system thus offers a very great flexibility in terms of on the off or retrofittable stock and causes only a small installation effort, there for the assembly the RFID transponder and the operation of the portable electronic device no Wiring or similar necessary is. It can Both active and passive RFID transponders are used.

The associated base station This is done at a suitable location in communication range within (or possibly outside) of the camp set up or mounted, depending on the size of the camp or depending on the data transmission range also several corresponding base stations may be provided to in advantageously a nationwide Ensure communication throughout the warehouse.
  • The Base station is advantageously by means of commercial Network technology, if necessary even wirelessly via a u.U. again other, third transmission standards with a the capture, management and / or control of accesses the subjects of the camp Computer system connected.
  • The additional Transmitting and / or receiving unit of the portable electronic device is in accordance with a advantageous embodiment for receiving instructions for a to be carried out on schedule Access and / or send data from access to a compartment of the warehouse suitable.
  • An instruction for an access to a compartment of the warehouse to be carried out is to be understood as an appropriately encoded instruction to the carrier of the portable electronic device. An example For example, this would be an instruction according to which, for example, he should "remove five components with the component number 0015 from compartment 10". Under the data of a successful access is a suitably coded information about details of a successful access to understand that colloquially, for example, "I learned from compartment 10 five components with the part number 0015" or in the case of a corresponding previous statement, for example, only from a confirmation of the planned access could exist.
  • at the second transmission standard the additional Transmitting and / or receiving unit is advantageously Bluetooth or to one under the generic term WLAN falling. In the under the aforementioned generic term WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) falling transmission standard it is preferably one of the family of standards IEE 802.11 falling transmission standard, such as. IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.118.

It is advantageously provided that over a corresponding adaptation of the reading range of the RFID reader, the for example, by a variably adjustable transmission power of RFID reader can be achieved, that can be ensured when accessing on a particular subject of the warehouse really only one this Compartment-identifying RFID transponder is read out.
  • Furthermore, it can also be advantageously provided in the system according to the invention that a compartment is assigned a plurality of RFID transponders identifying the compartment. This proves to be particularly advantageous if the size of the subjects of the camp or their access openings differ greatly. With a considerably larger compartment compared to other compartments, it is therefore possible to use a plurality of RFID transponders, each of which is suitable for identifying this compartment. This is made possible for example by the fact that it is at the corresponding transponder to those with a identi or that in the accessing, managing and / or controlling software of the connected via the base station EDP system, the allocation of multiple identification numbers for a subject is allowed. This can be ensured even when a compartment with egg ner compared to the (set) range of the reader large dimension that when accessing this compartment an automatic identification of at least one of the RFID transponder takes place, which is then assigned to the appropriate subject.
  • In addition, proves It turns out to be advantageous when it comes to the RFID transponders are those with a writable storage unit. Around functionality to be able to use a writable memory in the RFID tags, must be apparent the RFID reader of the portable electronic device are also suitable for describing this memory unit.
